Would you check your coolant level and it'* color? If it looks good to you, then I'm barking up the wrong tree! Sorry!

Moisture can either be from condensation buildup after a hot/cold condition(normal during this time of year) or you have coolant going into the crankcase.

How is the coolant level anyway?

For the time being, just monitor your coolant level. Both the reservoir and radiator.
My suspicions seem to be leading me back around to Mikes earlier comment!
